the hotel I stayed at on my first trip; O’Haire Motor Inn
hallway right outside of my hotel room
exterior of the O’Haire’s lounge; the Sip Dip. This bar was voted the #1 lounge in America by some magazine; I think GQ
interior of the Sip n’ Dip. very ‘Fear & Loathing’esque. Behind the bar is a window into the swimming pool; actually, I think that’s its main attraction!
shot of Rodger Dam from the park right in front of it
river road; leads to the first fall (of Great Falls)
the first fall of Great Falls
fish hatchery (no swimming!)
one of Great Falls’ parks
and another park
dangerous picture taking above the falls
river; just after Rodger Dam
river near the springs
I think this is a statue of Louis and Clark…..memory’s fading. Great Falls is one of the locations where they stopped; there is an extensive museum about their expedition on the north-east side of town.
at the park where the statue was located
downtown Great Falls….very postcard’esque. Downtown gets pretty deserted at 5.
looking in certain nooks and crannies (I hope I spelled “cranny” correctly), the town almost feels like it’s still in the 40’s or something
statue in the middle of Downtown. Don’t remember who it’s of; it was about to rain, and I was in a hurry.
a very big, very old style post office… the rain is coming as you can see!
just a nice spot, nothing more
leaving Great Falls for a day, to see some of the surrondings. Driving and picture-taking, and I’m still alive
more scenery on my day’s drive. This was the snow from the day before.
Went to a small town outside of Great Falls called Niehart. Very small and quiet. Hopefully no new unibombers are being raised here.
on the day I left; view of the town from the airport hill… and that’s Great Falls
